by being me and drawing
I also got a chance to visit the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library for their Calvin & Hobbes retrospective. Teared up while looking at this specific strip, the final one. (at Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum)
Yes this strip
I still have all the calvin and hobbes collections from my childhood. what an important comic.
More 13th age NPCs: A couple of Knights of the Archdragon the players brefriended over the past few sessions. Their cloak colours show the order to which they belong - the bear to the Order of Unyeilding Scales, who are guards and protectors; the dragonkin to the Order of the Unblinking Eye, who are scouts, rangers and lookouts.
Practicing character modelling - thanks to Mr. Moon for drawing me a neat turnaround of one of his characters!
I think I’ve mostly got the basic body down. Now for the hands and head!
Hbomb and me have a kind of productivity art pact going on at the moment so I’m excited to see this progress!
A quick-ass Hoth turnaround. A request from hbomberguy
Minimum wage should be linked to the poverty level.
This is basic economic fact.
A business that claims it can’t afford to pay a living wage to its workers is admitting that by definition it fails to meet its basic operating expenses. That major multinational corporations can be “successful” while failing to meet a basic operating expense is only possible because We The People pick up their greedy/lazy slack through taxes and charity.
And yet somehow it’s everybody else who’s a moocher and a looter…
And this corrosive greed is a big part of what’s slowly poisoning the U.S. economy. Money being hoarded at the top and put in “safe” investments and bank accounts is money that does nothing for no one. It’s just an elaborate means of keeping score. Money put into the hands of the workers does what money is meant to do: it circulates. It gets spent. The same dollar will go through dozens of sets of hands, touching dozens of lives, feeding dozens of people and sparking profits for dozens of businesses. The same dollar, in the hands of the rich, will generally do… nothing. It won’t create jobs. It won’t fund innovations. It won’t start businesses.
Less than 1% of corporate revenues become wages for workers. Less than 3% of the wealthy are actually entrepreneurs (people who risk their money on business ventures that create jobs).
But 100% of the working class spends their money. That money creates jobs. That money fuels innovations. That money becomes profits. That money keeps the economy ticking.
We have been lied to about who are the parasites and who are the drivers of the economy. We have largely accepted a view of money as a means of keeping score and the economy as something that must have winners and losers, rather than money being a proxy for barter and an economy being a way to divide the labor of society and distribute the load of living

Hey look a huge wall of truth just landed on my blog.
